Genital Herpes Symptoms and Treatment Options

Learn what herpes looks like, what it feels like, and the treatment options available. Herpes is a life long disease so knowing how to properly manage your herpes can make the difference in your overall quality of life.

The condom is the best protection against genital herpes when sexually active. The consistent and correct use of condoms helps prevent transmission. Condoms are controlled to ensure that this virus cannot pass through the material of which they are made.
